    If you have a taste for wacky sweets, you must be one of the legions of fans of these off-the-wall doughnuts, featuring fillings and toppings from crushed candy bars to fried chicken strips and bacon. Read more

    Gigantic donuts drowned in sauce and toppings. One of the best things I've ever tried. Do opt for the ones with a cream cheese icing and not the chocolate icing because it can get really sweet.

    Just please try with everything, for me, my favorites, Black Out it's a chocolate bomb, Funky Monkey if you live bananas, and for something more classic try the incredible PB & J

    In the North doughnuts are considered breakfast food; not so in Austin, where doughnuts are clearly dessert! Can't decide? Order the Miss Shortcake and Naughty and Nice and wait for a sugar rush!

    Scrumptious! We had the pb&j, Elvis, and granny and they were all out of this world. So many fancy donut spots focus on fillings, but I love that they focus on toppings for a perfect yeast donut!

    With baked goods as unique as Austin itself, this little specialty shop doles out some of the most lavish and indulgent doughnuts you may ever encounter. We recommend the PB&J and the Mother Clucker.

    Ah-MAZING. Granny's pie is so delicious! Can't wait to try the other flavors. The food truck is cute and quirky, be prepared for a little bit of a wait usually.

    Sugar overload, but delicious! If you love sweets, get one for yourself, if not pick one to share. Bring a cup of tea or coffee.

    These doughnuts are delicious, though sweet-tooth-slayingly huge. Come w/ friends so you can get multiple types and split.Also, you will need at least $5 in cash to… (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Best food truck ever! My absolute favorite is the Funky Monkey--grilled bananas, cream cheese icing with brown sugar. It costs only $4.50. Add a scoop of ice cream for $1 more!

    Gordough’s offers handmade donuts fried to order and smothered with funky toppings. Try a Mother clucker – a massive donut topped with Cajun coated chicken strips and honey butter.

    This place is RIDICULOUS. The Slow Burn (habanero jelly and cream cheese icing) was amazing. I seriously thought about ordering everything. I still dream about this place. - Kellie, Community Manager

    Order the Slow Burn (habanero pepper jelly, cream cheese topping) or the Flying Pig (bacon, maple syrup icing) — and a wheelbarrow to help you back to your car.

    Gourdoughs is famous for the most delicious donuts in Austin. The toppings and fillings are pretty heavy, so I would recommend splitting a donut if you don't want a stomach ache!

    Want to know why you're paying about $5 for a donut from this trailer? Because these aren't just donuts—they're fried pieces of heaven, available in a dizzying array of flavor combinations.

    Another late night dessert and drinking spot, choose from a huge selection of doughnuts piled high with a variety of toppings
  • Austin American-Statesman
    The 25 or so varieties come filled with cream, dusted with cinnamon, dressed with habanero jelly and rolled in coconut. Try the Flying Pig (bacon doughnut!). Read more

    Miss Shortcake is melt in your mouth good! Loaded with lots of strawberries too!!
  • James D.
    The donuts were just perfect, crispy and hot on the outside and soft inside. Can't go wrong with anything here.

    Flying Pig had way more bacon than I expected but was pretty tasty. The real crowning glory here is the PB&J. Try it, it will change your life!!

    These doughnuts are huge - and a meal in themselves. If it's busy, it can take quite some time before your order turns up.

    There's nothing precious or subtle about Gourdough's. These are big, sweet and in your face doughnuts. You'll wish you were hungrier. Try the Cherry Bomb.

    So awesome, I don't recommend creating your own--trust the people, my creation was not nearly as good as their choices.

    So far my favorite is the mother clucker. Never had anything like it. But it's a heartattack waiting to happen.

    Haven't been in almost 2 years.. It took about that long to work off the donut from back then.. Can't go wrong with it, just don't go if you're not ready for a spike in your heart rate

    Here you can cross ‘eat a donut the size of your head’ off your bucket list. Scarf down the Fat Elvis, it has peanut butter and bacon on it, mmmmmm...

    Ridiculously long wait on Friday/Saturday night (Like over an hour!), but worth it.Take a walk, eat at another food cart, or hang out at a picnic table while you wait. The milk is warmish- ewww!

    PB&J must stand for Pure Bliss and Joy because it's amazing. I considered making myself throw up so I could experience it again.

    The ODB cream-filled doughnut holes rolled in coconut shreds are perfect and more shareable than the regular doughnuts.
